Mateo Stevens Debuts Three New Tracks in Lionsgate/Pantelion Film Spare Parts
Official Video for “Back in Town” Available Now
LA-based bilingual singer-songwriter Mateo Stevens has debuted three new songs in the new Lionsgate/Pantelion film “Spare Parts,” officially out in 400 theatres today, along with releasing his official video for the single “Back in Town.” Spare Parts stars George Lopez, Marisa Tomei, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Carlos Vega (Big Time Rush), and tells an inspirational story of four Phoenix-based illegal alien high school students competing in a high level NASA-sponsored national competition for underwater robotics. Originally called “La Vida Robot,” the film is based on the Wired Magazine article that inspired it. Mateo’s tracks featured in the film include “Back in Town” (feat. Asdru Sierra and Zara Sky), “Desconocido,” and “Miles to Go” (feat. Free (w)ill).
Mateo Stevens brings his strong musical influence to the film, having grown up in Southern California and being immersed in Latin culture. Mateo determined at the age of 13 to learn the language of his community aided by years of studying and time spent in Spain, Ecuador, Mexico, Costa Rica, Paraguay, Argentina, and Guatemala. With the help of producer and friend Erik Janson, Mateo writes original music filled with romantic notes and penetrating chords and tells stories of the past – which bring us closer to the unknown.
“Mateo’s music packs a huge emotional punch,” says Spare Parts producer Ben O’dell. “His songs are both epic and very intimate at the same time and they are infected with a kind Latino vibe without losing their rock and roll roots. We couldn’t be prouder to have three original tracks from him in our film.” “I am humbled to be involved in this great film with such a positive and important message, and honored to have some of my music be a small part of the project,” says Mateo Stevens.
